Be a driving force in the design and delivery of state-of-the-art solutions that transform our clients - from start-ups to global household names. If you've been treated by the NHS, passed your driving test, or paid via Apple Pay, you'll have used one of our systems. Our architects have always been at the centre of our engagements, taking the lead on technical quality and ensuring solutions will work in the real world, not just in the sandbox.

Overview

We're proud to take on the hard stuff and get it right, and we're passionate about building high-quality solutions that bring maximum value to our clients. At BJSS we've created the backbone of the NHS, trading systems that deal with half the world's foreign exchange, and helped organisations like Amnesty International improve human rights.

You'll work with high-performing, multi-disciplinary teams consisting of BJSS peers, clients, and partners. As a technical authority, you’ll lead by example, inspiring delivery teams to create great software products and technology solutions that demonstrate the art of the possible.

Variety of technologies and challenges

No two projects are the same, there are opportunities to work across a wide range of technologies, platforms, and paradigms. Our architects can face many challenges – from hands-on rapid innovation of a product from concept to live, to helping large enterprise clients with multi-year transformation roadmaps aligning people, process and technology change.

We empower engineering teams to make sound design choices while managing client stakeholder expectations and creating opportunities for continuous improvement. Be part of a learning organisation where you're always encouraged and supported to voice your opinion and continue your development.

BJSS projects have engaged my passion to work on real-world, complex problems. I'm empowered to bring creative, pragmatic solutions. I find my colleagues talented, open to brainstorming, and always kind. I feel respected, valued, and listened to. Love it!
Katrin, Architect (London)

Our take on architecture

We believe that successful delivery requires pragmatism, strong leadership and mentoring, great communication, and leaving ego at the door. Gone are the days of command and control from an ivory tower – our approach to architecture centres around the empowerment of teams, guidance, and a willingness to get stuck in when help is needed.

Our architects take responsibility and feel a strong sense of ownership of our solutions. They’re not afraid to make the tough decisions when necessary, but always back them up with impeccable rationale and a healthy respect for others’ opinions. Servant leadership is our way.

Work flexibly

We believe that hybrid working should be about flexibility. As an architect at BJSS, you'll have the option to work from home, a BJSS office, or from the client's site, depending on your preference and the nature of work to be completed.

We've introduced new office locations across the UK. Accessible to everyone as and when needed, these extra sites mean you'll be under no pressure to relocate.

I’ve been a huge advocate of remote and hybrid working for many years, both before and during my four years here, and BJSS has always made it easy to work in whatever way works best for the client and team. Now with our hybrid working culture in full swing, there is so much flexibility in how each team decides to work it’s great. We have a strong engineering community and although remote working is great, I love being able to come into the office and work face-to-face with my colleagues when it suits us!
Tim, Principal Technologist (Nottingham)

The migration of our Testing & Registration system to the public cloud was time-critical. Using BJSS Enterprise Agile, its expertise in cloud and open source combined with its collaboration with our legacy supplier, ensured a seamless transition of the service.
Alex, Digital Services & Technology Programme Delivery Executive, DVSA
It was really invaluable to get BJSS’ experience and to work with a company that is not just focused on cloud and infrastructure. BJSS has been really understanding of MIB’s requirements and culture. They’re now regarded by MIB as being an internal member of the team.
Raj, Cloud Architect, MIB
We chose BJSS because it was apparent when they came in that they were not like the other suppliers we were seeing. They were an obvious alternative to the problem we wanted to solve. We benefitted from BJSS’ experience in cloud and their approach they’d used in other companies.
